enumElement
Question mark

A numbered list.

Displays a sequence of items vertically and numbers them consecutively.

Example

Automatically numbered:
+ Preparations
+ Analysis
+ Conclusions

Manually numbered:
2. What is the first step?
5. I am confused.
+  Moving on ...

Multiple lines:
+ This enum item has multiple
  lines because the next line
  is indented.

Function call.
#enum[First][Second]
Preview

You can easily switch all your enumerations to a different numbering style with a set rule.

#set enum(numbering: "a)")

+ Starting off ...
+ Don't forget step two
Preview

You can also use enum.item to programmatically customize the number of each item in the enumeration:

#enum(
  enum.item(1)[First step],
  enum.item(5)[Fifth step],
  enum.item(10)[Tenth step]
)

Syntax

This functions also has dedicated syntax:

Enumeration items can contain multiple paragraphs and other block-level content. All content that is indented more than an item's marker becomes part of that item.

Parameters
Question mark

tight
bool
Settable
Question mark

If this is false, the items are spaced apart with enum spacing. If it is true, they use normal leading instead. This makes the enumeration more compact, which can look better if the items are short.

In markup mode, the value of this parameter is determined based on whether items are separated with a blank line. If items directly follow each other, this is set to true; if items are separated by a blank line, this is set to false.

Default: true

View example
+ If an enum has a lot of text, and
  maybe other inline content, it
  should not be tight anymore.

+ To make an enum wide, simply
  insert a blank line between the
  items.

numbering
str or function
Settable
Question mark

How to number the enumeration. Accepts a numbering pattern or function.

If the numbering pattern contains multiple counting symbols, they apply to nested enums. If given a function, the function receives one argument if full is false and multiple arguments if full is true.

Default: "1."

View example
#set enum(numbering: "1.a)")
+ Different
+ Numbering
  + Nested
  + Items
+ Style

#set enum(numbering: n => super[#n])
+ Superscript
+ Numbering!

start
int
Settable
Question mark

Which number to start the enumeration with.

Default: 1

View example
#enum(
  start: 3,
  [Skipping],
  [Ahead],
)
Preview

full
bool
Settable
Question mark

Whether to display the full numbering, including the numbers of all parent enumerations.

Default: false

View example
#set enum(numbering: "1.a)", full: true)
+ Cook
  + Heat water
  + Add integredients
+ Eat

indent
length
Settable
Question mark

The indentation of each item.

Default: 0pt

body-indent
length
Settable
Question mark

The space between the numbering and the body of each item.

Default: 0.5em

spacing
auto or relative or fraction
Settable
Question mark

The spacing between the items of a wide (non-tight) enumeration.

If set to auto, uses the spacing below blocks.

Default: auto

number-align
alignment
Settable
Question mark

The alignment that enum numbers should have.

By default, this is set to end + top, which aligns enum numbers towards end of the current text direction (in left-to-right script, for example, this is the same as right) and at the top of the line. The choice of end for horizontal alignment of enum numbers is usually preferred over start, as numbers then grow away from the text instead of towards it, avoiding certain visual issues. This option lets you override this behavior, however. (Also to note is that the unordered list uses a different method for this, by giving the marker content an alignment directly.).

Default: end + top

View example
#set enum(number-align: start + bottom)

Here are some powers of two:
1. One
2. Two
4. Four
8. Eight
16. Sixteen
32. Thirty two

Variadic
Question mark

The numbered list's items.

When using the enum syntax, adjacent items are automatically collected into enumerations, even through constructs like for loops.

View example
#for phase in (
   "Launch",
   "Orbit",
   "Descent",
) [+ #phase]
